OPSEC - Navy Operations Security

Always keep Navy Operations Security in mind.  In the Navy, it's essential to remember that "loose lips sink ships."  OPSEC is everyone's responsibility. 

DON'T post critical information including future destinations or ports of call; future operations, exercises or missions; deployment or homecoming dates.  

DO be smart, use your head, always think OPSEC when using texts, email, phone, and social media, and watch this video: "Importance of Navy OPSEC."

Please note! Changes to this guide happened in October 2017. Tickets are now issued for all guests, and all guests must have a ticket to enter base. A separate parking pass is no longer needed to drive on to base for parking.

Please see changes to attending PIR in the PAGES column. The PAGES are located under the member icons on the right side.

This site must be good luck...he called me today AND I got a letter :-) :-) :-)  I guess they only get 4 hours of sleep and he is exhausted.   Thanks so much for all of the great advice

Thanks so much, we sent him a card already, and received my first real call from him today.  It was awesome hearing his voice.  I have really enjoyed all the info this site has to offer.

Thank you! :)

wow. That is good to know.  I got him a card but he hasn't called.  I know he loves me so I am not sure why.  Is it hard to get to the phone in boot camp?

As a military brat, I share your comment regarding life lessons.
